Lighthouse is a centre for wellbeing, study of mind and arts in therapy. The centre was founded by Zill Botadkar a Counsellor and an Arts Based Therapy Practitioner and Educator with the aim of holistic wellbeing for all. 

Lighthouse is intended to be a place where individuals are free to explore themselves in a non-judgemental, non-demanding atmosphere and examine their emotional needs, blocks and solutions to their difficulties. We believe in dealing with perspectives not just problems. 

We are an eclectic range of Counsellors and Therapists from solution oriented to holistic meditative approaches depending on what the need of the individual is. 

We see counselling and therapy as a process that develops positive coping skills and leads to long term happier states of being. Our services are tailor made to fit every clients unique needs and challenges. Some of which are catering to:

  •   ADHD/ADD

  •   Learning Difficulties

  •   Special Needs

  •   Behavioural concerns

  •   Anxiety

  •   Depression

  •   Trauma based concerns

  •   Emotional Regulation

  •   Relationship building

  •   Addictions - Internet, Phone and Games

  •   Parenting 



Life has changed for the better for both kids and me after starting ABT with Zill Botadkar at Lighthouse. It's a form of therapy that makes kids feel they are going for a fun filled session without really feeling being treated for a problem.

Led by a passionate and experienced specialist with a deep appreciation for individual children's learning needs, Zill with ABT is a great combination. As an educator, watching ABT impact children in different ways but with progression as a reward supports the cause tremendously. A wonderful addition for an educator seeking differentiation as a strategy! Zill's been fantastic with a pioneering approach.
